Modeling of liquid tin target deformation by laser pulse
The method of gradual simulation of liquid tin droplet deformation by laser pulse is considered. The first stage is laser impact on droplet. It was simulated using RALEF-2D code, based on radiative gas dynamic model. The next stage is free target evolution from a droplet to a disk. This part of simulation was carried out using OpenFOAM code where surface tension is taken into account. Good agreement with experimental results was obtained.
